The centrally located, 186-room InterContinental Miramar Panama is a relaxing escape from the bustling city, with easy access to downtown attractions, the business distrcit and the historic and trendy Casco Viejo neighborhood. The guestrooms overlook both the ocean and the mesmerizing, skyscraper-laden skyline along Panama Bay, and have a modern look and feel thanks to wooden or beige leather headboards and beds wrapped in crisp white linens. A slew of big resort–style amenities provide opportunities for some R&R, including tennis courts, a full-service spa/fitness center complete with Jacuzzis, Turkish baths and saunas, and a free-form pool crisscrossed by pedestrian bridges. When hunger strikes, the aptly named Bayview restaurant serves classic Central American dishes such as ceviche and Panamanian stew.
In the Area
Start your day in the sultry capital with an ice cream at Granclement, which uses French artisanal recipes for its range of unusual flavors, such as ginger and basil. While in Casco Viejo, take a guided tour of the presidential palace, Palacio de las Garzas, a 17th-century landmark with an Andalusian courtyard, then do some people watching at the bustling fish market before heading upstairs to the diner-style restaurant, where you can nosh on some of the just-caught fare from downstairs. Spend the rest of the afternoon at the Miraflores Locks, watching giant freighters navigate the Panama Canal — a surprisingly mesmerizing sight.
How to Get There
This does have nice rooms with very nice views. The breakfast buffet was good and the pool area was nice. gym with plenty of equipment if not space. Unfortunately seemed under staffed and under prepared for large amounts of guests. One person in our party got ill from the lunch buffet, another had his credit card stolen (at the bar). Their are only two elevators for this very large hotel and one was broken making the wait 15 minutes to get to your room.
This hotel was in a great location just off the ocean and had a walking/running trail for working out. The hotel had a nice relaxing pool with plenty of lounge chairs and beverages can be ordered there from the pool bar. Morning breakfast was outstanding with plenty of choices and complimentary with the room charges. Courteous staff members especially the night manager John and Ariel Gonzalez who took care of our evening meals deserve high praise. We will recommend this hotel to our friends and family.
IHG- Please year this place down.
Friendly staff operating in a tear down hotel.
Windows are obscure with moldy trim, our sink was clogged, bedding smelled like sweat (not ours), horrible mattresses, bathrooms were dirty and in very poor condition, only one working elevator for 25 floors of guest rooms, dangerous uneven deck with slippery slimy tiles around the pool.
Again, staff is very friendly and inviting.
This property is reasonably priced and it would offer nice views, if the windows were cleaned.
